Help Our Family Stay Strong

Many of you know my nephews mean the world to me and many of you know how far I will go just to protect and help them in any way. For the past year or so their father Tony has been in war with his health. From finding out he has cirrhosis of the liver to battling mental health issues everyday and reoccurring hospital stays. Which brings us to today May 4th, 2018... Tony is currently at the hospital with very low blood pressure, he is jaundice, has uncontrollable shaking, severe weakness and cannot keep his balance. He has completely lost his track of time and cannot stay awake more than 30 minutes and he doesn’t eat due to feeling nauseous all the time. My sister Bernadette has been the strongest she could be through this all. She is the only one working right now and unfortunately had to put Nursing school on hold due to having to support her family. My four nephews, ages 19, 10, 6, and 3 are the ones who brighten up the room with just their smiles. Their laughs make our hearts melt and I don’t want them seeing their family struggle. With everything going on this time is very difficult for my family to go through. We don’t know what the future holds for us, but praying for a miracle. I am not asking for much from anyone but I would really appreciate any small donation. Anything will help my sister with any medical expenses, bills, and food on the table for my nephews. My heart aches for my sister and her family. So please send positive vibes and prayers our way.
